The Stylus Color 1160 business ink-jet printer from Epson America Inc. can print spreadsheets, organization charts, network diagrams and computer-aided design renderings on paper up to 13 inches wide by 44 inches long.

Steve Semos, the product marketing manager for Epson of Torrance, Calif., said the Stylus 1160 has a micropiezo head that deposits picoliter-sized ink droplets in 720- by 1,440-pixel resolution, at claimed output rates of 9.5 pages per minute in black and 7 ppm in color.

The printer has parallel and Universal Serial Bus ports. It works with Microsoft Windows and Mac OS 7.x and 8.x operating systems, and with iMac computers. Semos said networked Macintoshes automatically do USB print-sharing without extra hardware.

Epson bundles photographic software titles with the $399 Stylus Color 1160.
